WHAT DOES THE CONSULTATION COVER?
What do I need to send to you?
We welcome as much information as possible, but the main items, are a copy of your house plans and a map showing the location of your house on the site, in relation to North. A few arrows showing the direction of any views or slopes on the site, would also be very helpful. Any further details you can send us, to help us better understand your specific needs or concerns, will help us tailor our suggestions to best suit you.
Do you provide drawings?
We don’t provide revised drawings as such, however we do sketch over your existing drawings to explain our recommendations and illustrate where we think your plans could be improved.
What areas of Self-building does the consultation cover?
Although we specialise in design, we have been involved in hundreds of self-build projects and can advise on all stages of the process. We can answer your queries on a wide range of topics including planning, budget control, sustainability, project management and many more.
I am interested in extending or renovating my home, but don’t have any floor plans?
To provide you with the most beneficial advice and suggestions, we require an indication of your current layout along with any relevant photos. These can be hand drawn and don’t necessarily need to be to scale, but should be as accurate as possible.

This particular service is aimed at people who already a copy of their plans and would like us to review them, along with offering general self-building advice and guidance.
